What Stuart seems to be saying is that when one moves more to the left or
to the right, he becomes more hostile and uncaring towards people.  I don't
see how that follows, and I want any data anyone has.  Hostility and
uncaringness can be found abundantly in middle of the road people who just
want to fight someone, and will adopt any philosophy that gets him there.
Amoral.  Apolitical.  Power hungry.  bill w
